I had a tough beat last night, as Kansas blew a late lead thanks to missed free throws and a lucky banked in 3 from Texas. Oh well, I’ve caught some breaks the past week so onto the next!
Arkansas (#27) +2 over Auburn (#7)
Is tonight the night that Auburn’s win streak comes to an end? I think so. Auburn has narrowly avoided disaster on the road recently against much lesser teams than Arkansas, needing a furious comeback in the 2nd half to beat Georgia (#197) by 2 and narrowly avoiding losing to Missouri (#127) 55-54.
On the other side, Eric Musselman has his Arkansas squad playing as good as anybody in the country recently (currently on an 8 game win streak), especially at home where they are 13-1 this season. They also just beat Georgia by 26 and Missouri by 44 earlier in the season, so they’ve proven themselves to be much more consistent and reliable in recent weeks.
I still feel like this Auburn team is good but not great, which makes them overrated currently, while Arkansas is flying under the radar despite coming into their own after a slow start to the season. I’m rolling with the Razorbacks at home to cover and likely win outright, as I’ll always be on the ML as well (+115).
